Glenn Alan Medeiros is an American (Hawaiian) singer and songwriter of Portuguese descent who achieved chart success in the late 1980s and early 1990s. After his musical career he taught and is now vice-principal at the Maryknoll School, a parochial school in his native Honolulu, Hawaii. Biography edit: Medeiros began his musical career at the age of 10 when he helped his father entertain guests on his tour bus on the island of Kauai. In 1987, at the age of 17, Medeiros won a local radio talent contest in Hawaii when he performed a cover version of George Benson's "Nothing's Gonna Change My Love for You" which was subsequently produced into an album by a small local independent label. A visiting radio executive from KZZP in Phoenix, Arizona heard the song and took the record back to Phoenix, where, through word of mouth, it became a national hit. Later, a worldwide hit, it reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and spent four weeks at number one on the UK Singles Chart in July 1988. In 1988, he recorded the single "Un Roman d'amitié (Friend You Give Me a Reason)", a successful duet in France with Elsa Lunghini. He also achieved a 1990 United States #1 hit duet with Bobby Brown entitled "She Ain't Worth It". The same track peaked at #12 in the UK chart. He had another hit duet with Ray Parker, Jr. titled "All I'm Missing Is You" which peaked at US #32. In 1989, Glenn recorded "Under any Moon" with The Jets, which was included on the Karate Kid 3 soundtrack. In 1992 Medeiros recorded a duet with Thomas Anders (of Modern Talking fame) titled "Standing Alone" and shot a video. Medeiros wrote "Break These Walls" for the New Zealand singer, Sam Verlinden. He also wrote the song "Follow the Sun" for Regine Valasquez which was later recorded by the group Forte. In addition, Glenn wrote the song entitled "These Tears I Cry" for Martin Nivera. Glenn has written nearly two hundred songs, many of which have been recorded by various artists throughout the world. Today, Medeiros is the host and performer at the Hale Koa Hotel's luau in Waikiki, and is the Vice Principal of Maryknoll Grade School. He has taught grades K, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and high school at various schools throughout Oahu starting in both public and private schools including Mililani Middle School, St. Joseph School in Waipahu, Island Pacific Academy in Kapolei, and Maryknoll High School. Personal life edit: Medeiros is of Portuguese ancestry. He graduated from The University of Hawaii-West Oahu with a BA in History and The University of Phoenix-Hawaii with a MA in Elementary Education.
